Rice (Oryza sativa) being a staple food, it is important to know the level of glycemic index present in rice. General public especially diabetics have a notion that rice should not be eaten, as it’s glycemic index value is high. However to identify whether it is of low GI or high GI, its glycemic value should be estimated. In the present study glycemic index was estimated for selected popular varieties of rice viz Srikakulam sannalu (RGL-2537) and Pre-released (RGL-11226) rice variety. Clinically healthy adult subjects (n=15) of age 18 - 22 years were selected for the study of glycemic index. The results showed that Srikakulam sannalu (RGL-2537) has got GI of 55.18 and Pre-released variety (RGL-11226) has got GI of 57.42. Based on these values Srikakulam sannalu (RGL-2537) can be categorized as low GI category and Pre-released variety (RGL-11226) under medium GI category.
